Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Video Shows Baton Rouge Officer With Arm Around Black Teen's Neck”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Local officials say they are investigating after a Baton Rouge, Louisiana, police officer was filmed pinning a Black 13-year-old to the ground and holding his arm around the child’s neck during an arrest on Sunday.

Video posted to social media shows an officer holding the boy on the ground as onlookers scream, with one repeatedly crying: “You’re choking him.”

The officer then appears to release the boy’s neck and places the child in hand restraints with the assistance of a second officer. (See blurred video of the incident below.)

Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome said at a press conference Monday that officials have not yet reached a decision concerning the officer’s actions but that a full investigation will take place.

“We will not skirt around any issues. We will make sure, I will make sure, that this is thoroughly investigated,” she said.
